  • The grounds and buildings are at first unassuming. We thought we had arrived at the wrong place. Since it was a weekday in November there were few tourists. We opted for the (very affordable) tour aft...  more »
  • Same area as River Rose paddle boat.....very informative when you take the tour. The 18th century stone house is where General George Washington brought the Revolutionary War to close.  more »
  • The guided tour is a must to get into the George Washington's house and see how our first president was living at the time. Very interesting if you are a historic buff.  more »

  • A hidden treasure of local and national history-- the museum includes the original building used by President (then General) George Washington to command the Continental Army during the last 16 months of the war. There are period displays in the headquarters and hands on replica artifacts that can be handled. There is also a larger museum space where more artifacts related to the Revolutionary War are kept. Please be aware photography is not allowed in the museums. The grounds are beautiful and the view is very nice.
  • I love the Hasbrouck house and it's jambless fireplace. The reenactors are beautifully dressed and great interpreters. Beautiful view of the Hudson River.
  • Very beautiful park especially since you can see the beautiful Hudson river on the background. I was passing through and did not get a chance to go inside the museum but I peeked and it seems very interesting. All structures seem to be very well kept and in fact one is under restoration.
  • Extremely clean and well maintained museum. The tour of the home was very thorough and informative! The grounds were well maintained as well. All in all a very satisfying experience today!
  • Looked nice from outside the gate. Wish it opened earlier than 11am since I was just passing through and wanted to see it.
